Workers begin installation of solar panels.

The Muskogee Civic Center is getting a major upgrade with a solar power system designed to reduce utility-sourced electricity and advance environmental and sustainable energy practices.

The City of Muskogee and ArrowPoint Solar announced the project kickoff date of November 23, which will continue into the holidays.

“We would like to have the solar installation complete in three weeks or less, weather permitting,” said Kelly Hoyt, Project Manager of ArrowPoint Solar. “However, because of the holidays, it may fall into the week of Dec 14.”

The move is part of ongoing efforts to make the building energy independent, Civic Center general manager John Cruz said.

“Last year we upgraded the building to LED light system and today we start the solar panel project, reassuring the City of Muskogee commitment to sustainable energy,” Cruz said. “It is another opportunity to market our facility to the entertainment industry.”

The project consists of 892 solar panels and approximately 330.040kw place in the rooftop of the early 1960s building structure. “Enough to power any size music production in the multi-purpose building” said Cruz.
